Madden 12 News Post


Jon Robinson of ESPN The Gamer takes us through the team overall ratings for the NFC North in Madden NFL 12.

Green Bay Packers: 92
No surprise here as the Super Bowl champs are the highest-rated team in "Madden 12." Aaron Rodgers falls just one point short of "Madden" perfection, with a 98 overall, while Charles Woodson (93 overall) and Tramon Williams (92 overall) will keep the corners on lock.

Chicago Bears: 85
Combine Jay Cutler's 98 throwing power with Devin Hester (98 speed) and Johnny Knox (97 speed) going deep, and you have a very fun "Madden" team. Throw in the running of Matt Forte, and you have an offense to be feared.

Detroit Lions: 76
The overall team number is a little low, but I can see the Lions being a popular team this year for the simple fact that this defensive line is going to give people headaches. Suh (95 hit power) and Fairley (88 hit power) are going to abuse virtual backs so bad, "Madden" might need to bring back the old ambulance.

Minnesota Vikings: 74
Ever since Adrian Peterson stormed the league, the Vikings have been a popular pick to play as in "Madden." But if you're still playing as them this year, it's really only because you want to run the ball down your friend's throat as All Day. And why not when the back boasts a 97 overall rating with 97 speed, 97 acceleration, and 90 trucking.

The Lions took you to the wire didnt they? The Cowboys took you to the wire too and beat you another time. SMH

PS: And before you throw the Lions beating the Packers, just remember that Rodgers was knocked out of that game.
well the packers are better than the eagles., but the lions had there third string qaurter back in the whole game, and rogers was in for the first half

I'm starting to think this guy is a Cowboys fan. All the "potential" and "coulda-shoulda-woulda" in the world without any results.

Alright I was staying away from this one because the Eagles and Packers are close. But don't anyone dare say the olsenless Bears with their derp QB are a better team then the Eagles. And yes, I know they will probably get Roy Williams

that derp qb demolished you..
A. dont say You because im not an Eagles fan. B. That was before he became the haynesworth of QBs and giving up. and C. You guys have gotten remarkably worse through this free agency. Bye bye manning, bye bye olsen, and wooooo Hurd and Williams. Bears are going to be last in the division this year.

We miss the playoffs without that week 1 win? Seriously? We won the division. We would have been 10-6, just like Green Bay, with the tie breaker over them. We would have still made the playoffs even if we lost week 1. Thank you, come again!

As a die hard bears fan, one thats watched every game for years now, I can say honestly that this last season was a hilarious joke. Our success was literally a joke through out the entire year we got every lucky roll, bounce, and call possible (except for NFC championship). Urlacher was the only reason our defense worked and our o-line actually made me wana puke. That being said, **** the eagles michael vick won't do **** this year. Teams forgot how to play against him but now that people are starting to remember he's back to be same old inaccurate vick.

First off, I don't understand why anyone cares what these numbers are. They are not even based off of the ratings of the players on their team. These numbers are an arbitrary value chosen by someone at EA and written over the top of the actual calculated overall. Even if it is the calculated overall we do not know what is used in this calculation. It's kind of like how defensive players overall rating is still heavily influenced by awareness even though it does not affect in game play (it did affect sim in previous years and I doubt that changed).

I know I need to get off of my high horse but this is another great example of people getting caught up in the hype train and looking for things to talk about.

In addition to throwing for 3,922 yards Rodgers also ran for 356 with 4 td's and a 5.6 avg. Thats not a strict pocket passer like Brady or Manning, thats overall athleticism. Does he have the wiggle and burst that Vick does? Not close, but he doesn't have to because he's more accurate and a better student of the game. He also didn't fumble 11 times. The only knowledge you're bringing to this conversation is what you've picked up from sportcenter highlights.
 
# 71 devroid @ 07/29/11 04:34 PM
avg. yards per completion
Aaron Rodgers - 8.3
Michael Vick - 8.1

So much for all those 80 yard bombs

Who said he was a strict pocket passer? I said hes more of a pocket passer than Vick is, you might want to go back and read what I said. Vick ran for double what Rodgers did and scored 9 TD's. But to you he's just as much as threat as Vick lol give me a break!

Lets break it down a little

first game against the Eagles Rodgers had a rating of 73.1 and had 2 INT's Vick came in half way through the game and if he had more time the Packers would of lost that game. he had a rating of 101.9 with 0 INT's and threw for 127 yards Rodgers threw for 188 yards, Vick had nearly as many yards throwing than Rodgers did the whole game.

Vick threw for 288 yards in the loss in the wild card compared to Rodgers 180, Vick rushed for 32 yards as opposed to Rodgers 4 yards. How could Vick throw for 288 yards on the ALL MIGHTY Packers. So much for sport center highlights. Also on the wild card loss its not like the packers blew the Eagles out of the water, it came down to the wire, but yet the Packers are leaps and bounds above the Eagles,o..k.

Two games too small of a sample size.

No need to assume Vick and your Eagles is the only team to drop 80 yd. bombs to Jackson.

Hello Rodgers to Jennings.

Packers won the SB, Eagles didn't. No one is saying that the Packers are leaps and bounds better than the Eagles, only you are words in for everyone.

I understand everyone loves discussion, but were at a point no one is going to agree... So how about everyone realize Jason Campbell is going to win the MVP, McFadden leads the league in rushing, Rolando McClain wins D player of the year and Al Davis is God! no seriously he is...

Ok anyway just kidding as a Raiders fan... but Rodgers is a better overall QB. Vick just has weapons he needed that were not presented in Atlanta. Jenkins, Finneran, Price were not the type of players that suited vicks game. Now Vick has speedy guys who can break off routes and go get balls, or just get open so he's not stuck taking off every time. Should be a fun year to watch both QB's play

As far as teams. Bears and Pack need to watch out for the Lions if Stafford stays healthy. The Eagles have to really only worry about the Giants. I'd say the Eagles have the easier road in to the playoffs

Oh of course its to small of a sample size but its what we have to go on when the two teams competed against each other...

I enjoyed reading this lmao.I have one thing to say thoe, after reading this thread I find it funny that this eagle fan thinks of his team as so high and mighty and better than the Packers.My dear boy the only proof u need is the packers won the Super Bowl.I may sound like a broken record following everyone in this thread but cmon now why wouldn't they be rated the highest if they won the superbowl??The Saints were last year im pretty sure and the only team I see rated better than the packers is the patriots.The eagles are a good team but they aren't as good as the packers i know im defending my team right here but all the bull**** about how ur team is more explosive is complete dumbfonded.Stats and Players can't compare to winning.Don't come onto a thread rating the Super Bowl champs and saying they're overrated because ur gonna get shut down.Remember this you can't say your better than the packers when we beat you guys twice last year despite stats or w/e because if we win thats all that matters in the end.

Those three names already should bump the eagles rating in madden up higher than an 86. The whole reason I commented in this thread is because of that. the rating should be on par with the pack or atleast close now.
